The Eagles welcomed back a trio of starters to practice this week as Donovan McNabb(ribs), Brian Westbrook(ankle), and Kevin Curtis(knee) all were back on the field.
While Kevin Kolb and Shady McCoy sure looked good against the Chiefs, the Eagles are going to want their top playmakers back to beat the real good teams in this league. Tampa is certainly not one of those teams, but a game at home against a struggling opponent might be just what McNabb & Westbrook need to sharpen their teeth for that stretch of division games that starts in late October.
In other injury news, Todd Herremans thinks he could possibly be back next week.
"It feels great to get off the scooter. I was sick of it to say the least," Herremans said at his locker on Monday. "I'm very happy right now."
Herremans had recently said that he was aiming to return for the Oct. 26 Monday night showdown in Washington. However, Herremans is holding out a possible return one week earlier.
"I'm shooting for Oakland," Herremans said. "I don't know. We'll see at the doctor's appointment today."
